As the nineteenth century drew to a close, the American public began to voice their dissatisfaction with the shoddy workmanship and gaudy excesses of Victorian furnishing manufacturers. The new century saw the emergence of a new style of American decorative arts - simple, clean, functional, yet artistic. Best known for his contributions to the arts and crafts movement was Elbert Hubbard, founder of the Roycrofters, who died when the Lusitania was sunk by a German submarine off the coast of Ireland on May 7, 1915.
